MOLD PROBLEM: Family Say It’s Making Them Sick

Picture 2

Joel Higgins says it took time for his family to figure out why they felt sick all winter. “We started getting into stuff. We couldn`t get anyone in here so we just started chiseling into stuff you know we found the mold in the kitchen,” said Higgins.

The more Higgins chiseled the more mold he found. Higgins says he contacted his landlord immediately after discovering the mold. “You know once we started getting into the mold talks with them it was like they kind of started blowing us off,” said Higgins.

Higgins says the owners Hedrick Properties have been blowing him off for the last three months, even after a city inspector filed 11 violations against the owners and ordered them to “address the mold issue.” “When the city inspector came in he also did a check in the attic part and it was all full of moisture and it was so smelly in there,” Higgins said.

Higgins says he can live with the smell. His biggest concern is his family’s health. Tests confirmed he and his wife are allergic to mold and his son now has asthma. “Just to see him have a rescue inhaler when he was a perfectly healthy kid that`s probably the hardest thing to do now,” said Higgins.

The Higgins tried removing the mold on their own, but had trouble breathing and had to stop. They say they can’t wait any longer. “We’re going to move anyway to a better home and one that we can all breath in,” said Higgins.

But moving day is still weeks away. “We`re still breathing this and we can`t go anywhere,” said Higgins.

Channel 13 reached out to Hedrick Properties earlier this week and again today. They did not return our calls.

We are still suffering but we appreciate again, your words of support. We will keep you updated as well as News Center 13. Thank you Courtney johns and Eli (camera person) for helping air our story!!!

      Joel, i feel your problem. My name is Holly Johnson and I had this same problem when I moved into a apt in urbandale, Iowa. Behind Kmart on Hickman, Westpoine managed by bh management. I know more about mold now then I feel I should know. The worst part is the fact that there are no laws to protect people from living in mold! Sure the city comes out and tells them that they have to fix it but even then I did not feel like the city really cared. They almost seemed to protect them. I asked them how this could be acceptable being that you could not purchase a home that had mold. He went as far as to say that in fact you could purchase a home with mold and it would be stated in an the contract whether the owner or the buyer wanted to fix the problem. What the this Urbandale city inspector failed to say was “Good luck getting it financed!” FHA will not loan money on house with mold, so why is it legal for them to cover up mold or not fix it properly here in Iowa. Also the inspector went on to state that, (I really like this excuse) “Mold is natural”. Not at the levels that I found it at in my Apt!!!! I had an air test done that cost $500.00. I had not lived in the space for a few weeks by the time this was conducted and also the windows were open and dehumidifier had been running for a few weeks. The air text guy used a poor outlet as well. It came back the air was fine by that point. So the guy cut out some of the vinyl flooring and sent it in. It was some very potent stuff and fruitful (alive and well). He said this was because I had not walked on the floors for a while and kited it up. Fortunately for me I had a renters policy through Nationwide paid me $10,000.00 for damages. Low and behold mold has microscopic spores that attach to all of your belongings. When you move it has to be cleaned properly. This can be done in many ways and I took no chances being I had only lived there for less two months and was extremely ill. My golden retriever was ill as well. Also, BHmanagement has all the big shot attorneys on hold. Meaning I can’t hire them to sue them. I can help you more if you contact me at my email address. HMJ1971@live.com Oh, not to mention, it isn’t against the law for the management companies to lie about mold issues. They have had many people call and ask them about it since I had it printed on the front page of the Metro section of the Des Moines register by Lee Rood. They still tell people that there isn’t mold issues even though it is clearly shown and printed in that article. If someone brings it to their attention, then they just tell them that I was crazy and just wanted out of my lease. I may be able to help more if you contact me. Laws need to change!!!! This is serious stuff and I could have been on a breathing machine for the rest of my life if I didn’t catch it when I did!!! Thank God for meeting another resident that told me he had it in his building and that they know about it and just cover it up!!!!

  • josh wirtz

    I actually did some investigating and hedrick properties just purchased property in last 5-6 months. Did the mold grow in 5 months because they bought the property? I know people who rent from them in Ames and they have totally remodeled all of the apartments better than most houses. Of course they can’t comment on this because duh!!! Their lawyers said not to. I hope this makes the news when the previous owner or the inspector is sued.

  • Joel Higgins

    They did a Walk through twice(not opening anything inside like doors cabinets), had 30 days to investigate the purchase and all debts from the date they purchased the place, is all we know

    • josh wirtz

      So they have never tried to fix the problem??? I find that hard to believe considering two of my friends who rented from them in Ames said quite the opposite. They had broken fridge drawer and a new fridge showed up and another said some ladies cat( who wasn’t supposed to have animals) tore up carpet so they had all wood flooring installed. Can you honestly say they haven’t showed up to fix problem? And if they did would you let them?

  • Coffee Pot

    The biggest scam out there, right now is the home inspector business.
    I go in houses and they tell you, it passed with flying colors. And you point to this and say this isn’t code, point to that and say that isn’t code, and this and that….. And the guy that just bought the house has this deer in the headlights look on his face.

  • Joel Higgins

    The expiration of the rental certificate (while we were already here) should have been discovered and remediated by the purchaser at the time of purchase rather than a tenant asking repeatedly for needed repairs from both prior and current owners, especially before the treatment they are giving tenants that tried to communicate with them.
    (Only our opinion)

  • Joel Higgins

    Keep in mind we DID show evidence of written communications in our case to support our situation. We utilized the free information we found from a HOME INC brochure, and we also utilized Iowa Legal Aid for protection from an attempted FED.

  • Joel Higgins

    Our utilities are higher than they should be( we have a lot of repairs needing done here), as well as us being sick and getting worse. The freed up rent money is helping us to have a deposit and first months rent for our new place, as well as carrying us through for increased doctor visits etc.

  • Joel Higgins

    If they have an attorney, why haven’t we heard from them instead of just a property manager or direct email contacts?

  • Joel Higgins

    @ Josh Wirtz; We have been to court, they know what they are supposed to do, and how to do it.

  • Joel Higgins

    Looking at the pics, obvious the molds been growing a lot longer than 5 months, the previous landlord here Tara Properties (Terry Anderson), who lost a lot of properties in bad shape never came in and did the repairs he promised either, we assume the molds have been here ever since we moved in on April 2012. After being sick all of this last winter, we didn’t have any answers. Someone suggested maybe it was something in our home. So we decided to look into ourselves. Thats when we started finding the mold, contacted the previous landlord about it first. He was going to come in and repair it (of course), and next thing we know in December is that the property was being sold. The Hedrick’s did 2 walk thru’s thats when we told them that we had concerns about the maijor repairs here. “Well take care of that right away” is what Shawn Hedrick said to us. Now, after this we started getting visits from the property manager. We had made prior arrangements with the previous landlord concerning a huge whole in our garage and made some agreements. After the Hedrcik’s sent us a letter that they would not be changing any of the policies etc. They sent there property manager over (he didnt even knock, just walked in) told us to sign this document, we refused and told us to get the “F” out! I told him he cannot talk to us that way and we called the police to file a report, he left. They then sent us numerous non-payment of rent notices and some with 0.00 balances and sent many people over knocking on the door to collect, also a collection 3rd party certified letter. Now, we contacted the City of Des Moines to come in because we felt violated and found out they did not have a valid rental certificate to even collect rent, that’s when they failed the 11 violations including 4 for the mold. The FED was thrown out in court and also they tried to charge us late fees that were not on the lease. They have tried to intimidate us, humiliate us, and they have tried to rub our name in the ground. That’s why we needed help from the media. THERE IS A LOT MORE TO THIS MOLD STORY. Danne Berglund was the property manager who came in and started all this flexing there muscle etc. We told them way back that my wife and I are disabled and they have not heard any of our pleas for help and assistance to get the major repairs done. We have documented everything and the numerous communications to the Hedrick’s to fix our place. They in turn tried to evict us quietly, NOT HAPPENING! Thank you all for your support but its best if you know the whole story, the previous landlord was just as bad, trust me! And these people are no different. They put us in, a sort of catch 22 but were staying steadfast and strong, as we can anyway.

    For the record i see some of your posts and yeah, they just forgot about us!!

  • Joel Higgins

    @ Josh Wirtz, are you sure you aren’t working for them, as the comment “And if they did would you let them?” sure sounds identical to someone else’s related directly to our case! They know what and how, especially after the FED hearing.

  • josh wirtz

    So how long have you lived there then? I just saw news and couldn’t believe how one-sided interviews. And why haven’t you moved out of there? If it was my family I would rent another place. There are plenty of places for rent in des moines. And do I understand that your not having to pay rent now. It looks fishy to me.

    • Joel Higgins

      Read ALL the posts, we are a “fixed” income, the answers to your questions have already been provided! NEWSCENTER 13 TRIED to contact them for thier side. No one else to blame but themselves for not responding. It just goes to show continued behaviors we have had to deal with all along if you ask us! We are waiting on another new place to be certified when it is ready… no where else to go until our new place is ready.We carry mold spores on us so heavily, that one person went into an attack of some sort after hugging us(a church member none the less), so we really can’t just go “anywhere” like shelters or such until we get a mold EXPERT to clear us for our next moves. We don’t want to carry anything into another environment and we may have to walk away from some or all of our belongings in here.

      • Fred Ver Schuure

        Hey Joel If you are on a fixed income does that mean that you are also on section 8 and if not you must not be paying your rent because of the FED and was the Terry Anderson that used to own the property a big guy from Oskaloosa that had his own construction crew??

  • Freeloader

    Wow, sounds like another sue crazy “victim” blaming others for their own problems. If it is really that bad, you should have moved your family out long ago for health reasons, but obviously, living for free is more important to you. Just another professional scam artist

  • Joel Higgins

    There is no reason to speculate or insinuate about “free rent” ; the costs for our utilities has been excessively high and it is due to lack of repairs. Not to mention that unless you have walked in the shoes of this, you have no clue what costs are associated! Monthly rent alone is only covering our excess of other things needed daily and the people who need to know our budget, get to know our budget! We are transparent to those who need to know! Public eye is not where people put thier family financial information!

    • Freeloader

      you have put it in the public eye, no one to blame but yourself. This story is so one sided, I would like to see what the landlords side is. If the mold has been there since 2012 like you claim, your the idiot for not moving out long ago. Too many holes in this story to believe you are the “victim”

      • Joel Higgins

        IF you READ your stuff, you will notice this was recently discovered, and later (more recently) verified for us tenants. We didn’t know the whole time….That is an assumption

  • Joel Higgins

    Our main priority is getting out; and a MOLD EXPERT ( we are still trying to figure our bills so we can try to cover that cost.) to make sure we get out safely and correctly! Once the mold expert comes in, after his tests are performed, we can get answers we need, and if qualified; he can help us get out asap to a proper temporary location safely! The mold expert is just a new discovered cost, and we are on a fix income; paying out all our money for living costs & associated mold issues at this very moment!

  • Joel Higgins

    There are a few people we see using languages used previously from our landlords to us via themselves and others. We are not going to respond any further after this; we have already tried to follow the process that is laid before us in the system. There is a “glitch” in the system which impacts disabled families and fixed income families. When burdened with such a disaster, how is one to go further in the system without a mold expert? Why is that not an option like HOME INC, Iowa Legal aid, etc? If it has to be counted on for the system, it should be made available for them as well in the future(we will figure ours out ourselves)!

  • jhiggins50312

    The only holes in this story is the landlords failed attempt to get us and get us out quietly because of the mold, I ALSO would like to hear there side since they’ve dodge the numerous txt, calls, emails, and certified letters not to mention the attempts that channel 13 did to contact them, What are they hiding Mr. Freeloader, nice name by the way, We have no other choice, that’s why we went public anyway. And yes we are the “Victims” of two landlords that didn’t do anything to repair, we ar e suffering and you have no idea what were going through. Like I claim, please your words are baseless , we are disable, sick, been pushed by them and there property manager for months now. I guess its easy for you people to say just move out into something better but its not as easy as it seems. Like I said live in our shoes then you’ll see. I thought the story was done great and the message was very clear. And as far as blame, I blame two landlords for our conditions not us, we have been doing everything possible to get us out to get our dogs (they are family) out, etc. The daily physical and mental and other issues relating to mold are extreme, so pls stop with the too many holes in this story, channel 13 was given all the documents, emails etc to do the story stuff you have not seen. God Bless you.

  • jesushchrist

    How long has it been since u paid rent? Have u had lawsuits against previous landlords in the past?

  • thisissilly

    Wow. Why didnt you move out when you first noticed mold? do the other tenants have mold issues or just you?

  • Dan O

    hmmmm…wonder what the previous owner of the place thinks of this tenant and if they had the same issues as the current owner. Why wouldnt you move out sooner if you suspected mold and had kids living with you?

  • Laurynda Northway

    Being a landlord myself I can see the situation from both sides. Even though they had recently acquired the property that is no excuse to not address the issue. If they own so many properties why didn’t they put the Higgons family in another unit immediately? Everyone knows the health risks of black mold – why wouldn’t the landlord help the family move somewhere else immediately when they found out? If nothing else the family should have had an eviction notice once the city inspector did not approve the rental certificate. This whole story is filled with negligence. The fact is this family should not be in this home and if it were my tenant I would have made a way for them to not be there as soon as I found out about the mold issue.

  • Joel Higgins

    Thank you “Laurynda Northway” Not sure anyone else on here is just a true “bystander” anymore. I will say we had a prior landlord for several years, did some work for him, and paid rent that even he wasn’t supposed to be collecting. Any further questions we see up here may want to look up Iowa Courts Online and type our names in to see what our past court histories hold! This is a first for us to have to deal with legally in our lives against a landlord who is in the wrong in so many ways(look up our record). We were recommended at the FED hearing to go file for our rent monies back all the way to October 2012. Time is against fixed income families more than most things (except finances, and we all struggle now adays without concern to income levels!).

    • Somewhere out there

      Professional scammers that’s all I’m going to say. First court case maybe because everybody else you scammed agreed to pay you cash to get you off their backs. If you were serious you would move your family out and find a new place. Must be nice getting a place where you don’t have to PAY RENT. what a joke. If I was your landlord I wouldn’t waste my time commenting either and leave it to my lawyer.

      • Joel Higgins

        Glad you “think” you know it all! NO one has paid us for anything related to this! We wouldn’t be here if they did,…DUH!

    • Malinda

      Mr. Higgins, I know what you and your family are going through. My family and I rented a house for 2 years. My daughter stayed so so sick doctors couldn’t figure it out. I had the house tested after I took my daughter to an alternative medicine place, which is not acknowledged by law, and mold showed up in her body. I am like mold that is when I had the house tested, full of it, but Jason is getting away with it. My daughters education has suffered went from an honor student to behind. My son has been nothing but sick since moving out of the mold. His doctor knows about this and his health issues and does not care. It has been so hard and we still have our stuff, which I have cleaned, because we couldn’t afford to buy anything new. Both of my children has suffered, yeast in their throats, and on their tongues. My son who was perfectly healthy before has been nothing but sick at 12 years old and stays scared. He has lost weight too scared of chocking on his food. It even affected my cat, didn’t play the whole time we lived in the mold house, but did while living here. I can find no support in this, doctors, lawyers, health department, environmental health. This man failed 4 inspections after we left, was seen with 10 bottles of bleach, had to tear out all the carpet upstairs, and was seen going in with a suit on from head to toe before entering this house. I hope you get justice. There is never a day that goes by that I don’t have to deal with a mess about the toxic mold we lived in. I am still not finished with this. I am trying to figure out what I should do. I did have an attorney tell me that I needed to get another inspection, but he told me you can’t because you don’t live there anymore. So another words he is telling me I should have stayed in it. Insurance company telling me it wasn’t high enough to make anyone sick. What a crock, I suffered memory loss, couldn’t even drive right, sick all the time. I look at our medical records and think wow we were so sick a lot and all the time. Is there really any justice? It really makes me sad when my son says mommy am I ever gonna be well again. What do you say to that? Landlord hasn’t been not one time concerned about the lives he has messed up. Thanks for your time and I hope the best for you and your family. If you have any advice for me I would so greatly appreciate it. I feel so betrayed in all of this. He knew the shower in master bathroom had mold in the ceiling. He told me that’s mildew not mold. What is the difference when its been there for years and just painted over.

  • Joel Higgins

    We only want to breath safe air until we can move in 2 weeks into our new home. The cost of the move is not even considered by many…we are doing our best the fastest we can to get out. Trust me! We tried a lot before we even went public with our story

  • Joel Higgins

    Why hide your identity on these threads? What is left to hide? Strange names lead us to think your name is attached to part of your personality….just saying!

  • common sense

    Bleach kills mold. So can’t you just clean your house. or does the landlord need to get you a cleaning company. Not keeping up with cleaning and keeping the inside of your house really hot and stuffy during the winter months will always form mold. I live in a 4 year old home and mold forms on the window sills so we…..wait for….clean it up!!!! As for the other stuff, just pay your rent and let them fix the problems. They just bought the property what 3 months ago and you expect them to have it brand new in 3 months while not getting paid rent. So what your saying is that its ok for them to buy a property with their fixed income, hoping these properties will help pay for their kids college, and now you want them to what???? admit that they are negligent about the fact there is mold??? After they paid for inspectors when they bought it and are now finding out, after recieving no rent that you have mold. COME ON…..Why are you trashing them and not the old owner? Clearly your goals in this are evident. You use the words fixed income and call the tv stations. im wondering how much extra it will take for you to stay at home while the rest of us work our tails off to support you. because that is what we do.

    • Joel Higgins

      Bleach can “clean up” mold, but do you even have any common sense about mold and mold “spores”? Are you an expert? Do you understand “allergies”? Mold grew from the INSIDE out! In recent months! We did have the news in here, so I believe it isn’t on our end of the clean! Unless you walked our shoes, I guess you can’t say you know it all, or is this as far as your common sense goes? Mold is not the only issue, lack of communication, harrassment, repairs negligence still to this day under the new owners! We gave them 3 months to help us before we took this to the media! We are pinned to the wall! You sound a lot like one of the owners, by the way…look at what you said and why we think you are! Call us or email us if you need to communicate with us! At least that way you can show people you really tried to communicate with your real identities in ways to make things better! It is never too late to work with us, as we have already been through too much! Our place takes a lot of money to keep up and tolerable, yet with some days not as tolerable no matter what we try!

  • Joel Higgins

    What about our Income? We have a home based business on hold because of the safety concerns we came across! Why couldn’t they move us immediately since they didn’t want to do repairs right away in order to continue to collect rent?

  • Joel Higgins

    As a tenant, we would like to have this tested to see why we are so sick as there are many strands of molds that may do different things to humans. It also needs tested to ensure that you are using the proper methods to remediate each of those strands. Talk to a MOLD REMEDIATION specialist about how well bleach works, it doesn’t kill Stachybotrys chartarum (Stachybotrys atra)!!! We may have been breathing this in silently for 2 years before it was discovered as we searched for logic to our many compiling illnesses even with our child (perfect health until recent!) …which had nothing to do with rent! Does this make sense “common sense”? Or do you have a “real name” if you aren’t afraid of hiding your identity anymore!

  • Joel Higgins

    Oh, our income is our income, not that of tax payers(as you insinuated “common sense”), just limited by the way! there are so many people with the wrong assumptions now adays! Try using more logic, please!

  • Joel Higgins

    If you are not one of the new owners, how would you be able to say “After they paid for inspectors when they bought it and are now finding out, after recieving no rent that you have mold” …and if you are who we think, rent would get paid when repairs are done and passed with a valid rental certificate, which is clearly not being done still to this day! ….Why does our child have to change his entire focus in his activities for his new “ASTHMA” which he never had before? Please! If you were in our shoes dealing with all this you might take another point of view! We tried….and tried….and tried….and this we can forgive, but justice needs to be seen here so this doesn’t have to happen to anyone else on either side of the fence!

  • Joel Higgins

    If the owners don’t want to “justify” anything asap, we only had the courts and media to rely on!

  • Joel Higgins

    We have used bleach, to no avail many times, but bleach is a very toxic chemical when you have Asthma or any respiratory ailments! Our entire lives have to change now because of our experiences here. How fair is that? Our plans to move are still existing, we have the money to pay for our move and rent and deposit. This is not something we could come up with in one month on our own. We are ONLY waiting for the new place to get a rental certificate when it is completed in the next couple weeks. Until then, it would be a prayer answered to just move us to another location with safe air quality! Both up and downstairs tenants have mold issues in this building! The “spray paint’ used in side the cavity of a new dishwasher recently placed in a tenants home is NOT how you handle mold!!!!! We told the city inspector about that attempt right away! That is still dangerous for ANY tenant! That is in another tenant of the same owners unit! I am sorry they didn’t commnunicate properly with us, we tried for months, while our healths are quickly depreciating in this “trap”. If I were a tenant of these or the old owners, my lesson learned from this is you can’t trust painted or new drywall or carpet or nice looking places anymore without further knowledge of what is under the wall, floor, etc! We are learning that some landlords are “covering/masking” the actual silent dangers! Also, newer buildings are NO exception to this experience!

  • Joel Higgins

    Newer 4 year old home with mold in the windows you have to clean regularly? Try daily then! Outdoor molds come in that way as most would think. We are dealing with mold from INSIDE our floors, walls, and cielings! A whole different set of rules applies here!

  • Joel Higgins

    If you are renting or buying a home, maybe we all should start looking into having a “mandatory” mold specialist of some sort to test the air and other surfaces before anyone signs on a dotted line! Wonder if there is a way to incorporate that into rental certifications on quartely note? Mold spores can form in some cases in as little as 3 months, from what I’ve come across lately knowledge wise!

  • common sense

    I have posted with my name earlier(josh wirtz) and used common sense as my name this time using different computer. im not afraid of who i am but didn’t appreciate you embarrassing people from the ames area(where i live). when you know and i know these people will go above and beyond to fix the problem. as i said before, what would you do if you bought a property and the tenants did not pay rent and all of a sudden have mold problems. yes the problems should be fixed, but let them fix the obvious contributors. a friend of mine was going to do the roof but was called off because the owners said couldn’t trespass on their own rental property. another one of my friends who does inside work was also denied access. It sounds like it doesn’t matter who they send unless its a quote “million dollar an hour” mold inspector, you are denying them a chance to fix stuff unless its done your way. you are risking your families health by staying there and not letting them fix stuff. your church community im sure would have a place to stay to help you out for 3 or 4 days so they can get in and fix problems. these are not typical landlords like i have said in the past. they fix more than whats wrong to prevent situations like these. as you weave your words together you have more than once suggested that mold might have no correlation with the problems you are having so if you are wrong will you admit it on channel 13. are you admitting that you could be wrong? if there is doubt at least be honest and don’t ruin their lives because of this. i feel for your familys health as my wife and kids have had ongoing health issues which involve several surgeries and years of discomfort. we blamed everything(mold) around us but ended up changing their diet along with chiropractic care and it disappeared with in a few months. so you’ve chosen to play the mold card and are holding it tight, but think you will find that using it won’t solve all your problems.

    • Joel Higgins

      This is not about the people from AMES, so why would you even suggest that? We never mentioned anyone outside of the actual people involved. This is not your fight! They act different to you and others, from what we see and have supportive documents to back that up! What do you have, and why hasn’t it been to court if it is relative to this case? And I am so sorry, I don’t believe you are “common sense” as you both used different points of view, too late to change that now! Some of us have a little education around here!

    • Joel Higgins

      I’m sorry, is it the “Landlord’s Friend’s” business about our rent and peronal confidential and protected information they are not allowed to share unless given legal permission, which we didn’t sign anything for them by the way!

  • Jack578

    Mold can cause serious health problems. Bleach is not effective on toxic mold and can harm the occupants. For accurate information about the health effects of mold, go to TruthAboutMold.info.

    • Joel Higgins

      Thank you for that website! It was one of many that we have had to research for proper cleaning and removal only to learn you actually should have experts from that field do the job if you are allergic and not properly trained.

  • anonymous

    Did you also mention in your news story that you owe your previous landlord $10,000 in unpaid rent???

    • Joel Higgins

      PUBLIC RECORDS people, use the Public records, as that is not even true anywhere in Iowa last I knew!

      • Joel Higgins

        This is Waynette, under Joel’s account; How is this fair to ANY family right now? I am stressed beyond belief! The people commenting on here only scare future tenants from standing up for themselves in the eyes of the public! If we upset you, how? We were trying to politely accept new owners, in a “sneaky” sale of the property from the prior landlord. When we tried to communicate, we had high hopes with another set of empty promises. This time we documented and kept it all! We don’t need more fighting on here, we need resolutions that are peaceful, safe, and LEGAL!

        WE were quiet, how much longer does one have to be quiet before something takes a life? We are seriously allergic, and YOU are seriously INHUMANE in my eyes!

        I can forgive you all, but we will need to see justice from this as there still is no justice if we are still in here while waiting 2 more weeks for our new place to be ready! This slandering behavior is only hurting the otherside; that is not our intentions! We wanted placed for the remainder of our stay in a safer breathing environment, that was all they had to do in order to start the repairs before the city inspection ran up on them!

        To the public; We all need to try more peaceful ways of communicating with each other! We are doing our best under our current duress(and humans do make mistakes, we get that as we are human too); this is just way too long ongoing and way to much for ANY one to go through!

    • Joel Higgins

      That is also a desparate reach from the other side! Wow, so much slander on here without public record to support it! Logic, use your logic !!!

  • Joel Higgins

    So now we have the evidence that your just a mole and all of your accusations are baseless. we never denied anyone from coming in to fix anything just the property manager who harrassed us and yes doing mold take out and roof while we are here, WOW. Also Channel 13 has all the evidence of the harrassment we received but YOU do not mention that. thank you for sharing that your a mole for them. Why did the Hedrick’s not respond to Newscenter 13 GOD knows they never never never, let me say it again, never never never responded to us when it could of mattered. We have everything we need now , thank you. My wife and i are smarter than you and you just showed your true colors so again thank you. and now its recorded. And as far as rent, we were paid current until the ILLEGAL EVICTIONS without a rental ceritficate on file. Umm weve been going to a doctors, allergy specialist, and chiropractor care and we are still getting worse. Glad the Hedrick’s sent you on here when WE couldnt get a hold of them nor CHANNEL 13, hmm sounds fishy alright on your end, maybe I should post the numerous numerous numerous communications with them that we have, on here, that would enlighten everyone, for the past four months weve tried to contact your “friends” but nothing, got a comment for that?

    Can you tell us why we are talking to you on here about them but THEY cant respond by email or phone call, tell me that and as far as rent, better be careful, sounds like your close to SLANDER with our name without knowing facts. They threatened us on so many levels. Maybe you went to court when there property manager wore a hat into the court room, smart move from a property manager who told us the night he said we can get the “fuck” out and that he’s never lost a case and won a 10 of them, yeah that worked out great for your “friends” and again, THE CASE WAS DISMISSED with PREJUDICE, geez that doesnt look good for your “friends” either, or how about the 11 violations your friends have here. We will be glad to post all the emails we sent to your friends since January. Which Courtney from channel 13 has.

  • jhiggins50312

    10,000 hahaha now thats funny but i guess we’d expect some crazy’s on here….specially anonymous….guess we had that with common sense too, lol
    people who post on here anonymous shouldnt be allowed too, trying to start something that just isnt there….lol u guys are funny at the expense of our health so keep it coming!!

  • jhiggins50312

    The main thing here: the Hedrick’s and our prior landlord failed to take care of us. Failed to do there job and failed to make this a livable situation and if we couldnt get a hold of the Hedrick’s for months and Newcenter 13 tried to contact them to no avail, hmm what are we too expect …but on our side we have everything documented, learned that from the prior landlord as well. your documented proof is where? give that to 13, oh thats right, they didnt return there calls either, seeing a pattern here?….I think your really making it worse for them since they don’t have a voice of their own? WE NOTIFIED THEM BEFORE THEY PURCHASED THE PLACE that we had some concerns about the major repairs here during their walk through, December 2013 people. The reason why this was one-sided interviews because your “friends” didnt RESPOND!!!!!! Lets put them on camera and they can answer for the illegal eviction attempt, the harassment, and everything else we’ve been through, your right, lets get there side, I certainly would love to hear it from them directly. (as far as the walk through, Shawn himself said that they were NOT going to be like the last landlord and were going to get in and make repairs right away!) hmm ok that was in December…let me check my watch…its now March 24…wow time flies when your ill and still nothing from your landlords, whoever it might be!!! PLZ josh wirtz aka common sense your not even being valid because you really dont know the circumstances Id say you are the one, one-sided in this. Maybe the Hedrick’s should point out that we’ve sent them every documented allergy specialist and doctor notes to them and NOTHING!! of course I expect to take a little heat for going to the news but thats why their there for when people take NO actions. We are pleased at the wonderful job Newscenter 13 did that the Hedrick’s or the prior couldnt do, LISTEN TOO US!!! Is that so hard? You wanna try and blast us on here and dont know everything, wow. Have a good night! This would be funny if it were not pathetic….

    • Bob

      So how did the Hedrick’s fail you if they sent people to repair the damage and you refuse to let people on the property? Those things will come back to bite you on the ass in court…..you can’t refuse repairs and think you can still have your pity party. Justice will prevail and prove that you are just a scammer.

      • Joel Higgins

        Just for the record, the Hedrick’s ONLY offered to repair the roof (KNOWING the harm it will do as we provided all medical documents to support the fact that it would be endangering our lives further to do the “roof” while we are still under the roof breathing in the air it would highly contaminate for us)…They “claim” with their buddies on here a different story. Our question to them is why only repair the roof while we are here still, why not the many other items on the list? There is NO physical evidence (not a certified letter or anything) of them actually supporting their duties as we see it. The only other people active in this discussion more than concerned citizens are their people. This is their defense as we think, not a good one as they are still harassing us with “invalid” attempts and goons portraying the “clerk of courts” as her boss to deliver for them. A paper was delivered to our door on 3-27-14 with Heather Hedrick’s electronic signature, and no official stamping ANYWHERE! How legal is that? When we called the clerk of courts, they said that is not of their doing, unless it is “timestamped” (which it isn’t!)! Wow! One day before repairs need to be done (with no true attempts) and we do have more than one thing, and it is NOT required to fix other indoor issues around our place! Talk about LAZY, I would not call us lazy, as you are not in our shoes. This place requires way more daily physical cleaning than most offices and homes! This is not the only thing…our soap business (with physical evidence to support any claims) was put on hold because of this! We, unlike our landlord’s, care about our clients! Even to a complete loss and restart! Now, we are not worried about anything, other than getting some safer air to breath before our new place is ready in a week or 2! How hard is this Hedrick’s?

      • Holly Johnson

        Joel. There is so much that people will never understand unless they experience something like this for themselves. The magnitude of your problem is greater then you may even understand. You are right that you do NOT want to live in this home while repairs are being made!!!! It’s a very big deal and once the mold is exposed further to repair the air quality will be at dangerous levels!!!!!

      • jhiggins50312

        There is no physical evidence from the Hedrick’s to show any other effort other than them wanting to come in and repair the roof first. Any other claims can not be proven, as they never wanted to make any other repairs to our place, since they took ownership! We also took pictures of them repairing two different tenants places, but never leaving physical evidence for any repairs for our place. We have MANY repairs needing attention that do NOT require the roof to be repaired first! They Only suggested the roof as a sick beginning knowing the harm it could cause our family. The Hedrick’s could have called and left an actual voicemail, emailed, text, certified letter, etc! What PROOF do they have about the many repairs they claim we are refusing service for? We would never refuse repairs we need if it is not going to endanger our family any further! There are many repairs they could be getting done, but wish to use us to get out of fines with the city inspections. Rules are rules, excuses are excuses and can be seen by proper authority when it comes down to it!

  • Coffee Pot

    Okayyyyyyy, now that you have your lawyer running and hiding from you. I think you might have trouble renting elsewhere now. just a thought. Did you ever wonder why lawyers want you to keep quiet?

    • Joel Higgins

      “Coffee Pot” You are not even relative to the REAL facts, thanks for reminding us people gossip without validity! Our faith will see this through for us as it always sees us through our daily lives! We have many people within our nieghborhood and community to verify who we are…and noone is friends with EVERYONE! Don’t even try to scare us with your insinuating remarks! You are just a gossiper in many eyes! You don’t know us, and I doubt you know the other side. Your remarks could harm the side you are on, so I would think twice about how you word your “thoughts” on here!

  • Duh

    oh boy, sounds like you have been scamming all your landlords past and present. Karma will bite you big time, sounds like your biting off more than you can chew. Lazy people wanting a hand out, so sick of listening to people cry on the news yet they dont want to do anything for themselves, they expect everyone else to take care of them. Keep spewing, you sound like a complete idiot

  • Robert Thomas

    It’s typical for the defense side (insurance companies, landlords, their attorneys and experts, etc.) to make nasty and false comments on these types of news articles. Just ignore them.

    Be sure to read the paper titled “Remediation of mould damaged building materials—efficiency of a broad spectrum of treatments.” The researchers tested 10 different types of remediation and found that none of them were effective.

    • Joel Higgins

      Thank you “Robert” for your advice and words of comfort. We can’t stress enough that rent was paid until the “due process” was in action. A judge is the final decision, not the world outside, These are hurting us, as we all have emotions and different levels of coping with them. We are probably not going to care what is said anymore as we have to still live our lives. This is not a “get rich” tactic, as someone in our family could die any time with some of the stuff we suffer from. What amount of money would you put on YOUR child, husband, wife ….there is none! We only wanted what was supposed to be within our human rights as a tenant.We wanted to breath Safe air! What ever happens after all is done and said; We can forgive, we want to see that this doesn’t happen to another family. There is another family living around us, still paying rent to the landlords from our “understanding” because they are scared by what they see us going through for many months. Keep in mind HEDRICKS; There is NOT I repeat, NOT a CURRENT/VALID rental certificate on this building yet! From what we learned, it is ILLEGAL RENTING you are in action of, and if this is true if they want to pursue thier money back, they know the process. The law is in BLACK and WHITE! While everyone wants to make this a money issue and slam on people that is their peroggative. We just want to make sure our son and others don’t have to suffer anymore! The public eye is sure to notice that this is still going through “tit for tat” instead of the actions we desperately ask for our safety. There is no reason to continue to drag any of the tenants through all of this any further! ~ Blessings~Waynette

  • Yo daddy

    Your Joel are a idiot !! If you saw mold and was causing harm to you and your family then get out ASAP!! Fix rent my ass with what you paid you could of gone to a hotel and stayed why they fixed it!!! And you still continue to stay there omg really??? Maybe living for free is your thing??!! If it’s been going for three months then why not get out of the place ?? Oh wait you going to have to pay somewhere else!! Point is you put your family in harms way by staying there!! No one else but you!!!!!!!!! Yes please sue the landlords and continue to live there so you can put your families health at risk!!

  • Yo daddy

    Hey quick way to stop suffering move out and stay with family or in a hotel !!! Stop blaming others for your mistakes keeping your family in that place!! If you were a real man you would of moved out 3 months ago but no you want to live there for free!!!

  • Yo daddy

    You put your family in harms way by staying there!!! So stop blaming other people for your mistakes!! Maybe if you would clean the place up and not live like slob the mold wouldn’t have happen!!

  • Bob

    So you’re saying that Hedrick’s property management has been your landlord for 2 years?? Since you say that the mold has been in the house for 2 years, what about the previous owner? By the way all of you supporting this douche nozzle and thinking his current landlord is just a slumlord, I know through good authority that repairs have been attempted and these scuzzballs refuse to let anyone on the property to fix anything…..they WANT to stay in their filth and try and get free money while crying their fake sob story.

    • jhiggins50312

      There is no physical evidence from the Hedrick’s to show any other effort other than them wanting to come in and repair the roof first.

  • jhiggins50312

    Also, what harm would it have caused to put our family in a safer place during repairs? I bet they overlooked that one! We are still here, and they are still talking about us, while we suffer still for only a few more weeks. We pray nothing takes a life in this home.

    • jhiggins50312

      So the Hedrick’s do have other properties? Why didn’t they offer to move us then? if there is a valid and current rental certificate, we could have worked with them. I guess they are Not as caring as some suggest?

    • Sgt. Smith

      how could they afford to move you to another property when you haven’t paid rent for months at the one you are currently at? Sounds like they’d be best to get rid of you.

      • jhiggins50312

        The money they get or don’t get isn’t supposed to be disclosed publicly, we are checking into that accusation made on here! We did the proper process in court to find they can’t legally collect rent for this building(since we found it actually expired after September 2012, 4 months after we moved in…our recent discovery) nor evict under most cases, some research neglect on thier behalf when they purchased the place. That could have been rectified and everything could have gone differently for them, but like we said, the court is what freed up rent for us …not us just not paying without a just cause in the eyes of the court. Now, the money that got freed up is helping us to save for a new deposit & rent for our new place. The ONLY thing we needed help with was for an actual mold expert to come in and analize the types of mold we are breathing in; due to many illnesses rapidly out of nowhere affecting multiple family members and pets( that we found our environment is dangerous to our health”allergies” and it is spinning out of control physically, financially, and emotionally. Keep in mind the tenants below us have worse conditions and some worse health concerns that could be caused from the mold. They are just learning more about thier environment dangers recently. This site is just showing us the current owners have no interest in providing a safe environment nor moving us to a safe environment to get the mold remediated appropriately without futhering any of our health dangers!

  • Holly Johnson

    Joel. Contact me!!!!! Don’t argue with these stupid people. I may bs able to help you with your current situation!!!!! HMJ1971@live.com. I don’t want to leave my phone number on here for the world to have.

  • Sgt. Smith

    If you do a public search on Joel Higgins and Waynette Higgins a/k/a Waynette Bishop, this is obviously not their first rodeo… You want the mold corrected but won’t let them in to correct it? Well, then you need you to move, so they can correct it. As a renter, I’m sure it’s easier to believe that your rich landlords put the mold there just to make you mad and ruin your health, but you just don’t have common sense to see the other side, or be smart enough to move your family out. Or, with as many financial and eviction issues on your record, it may be hard to get a new home to rent, huh?. So, you have to be sue happy to keep food on the table, and move on to your next landlord victim. I like how your “Beat Mold” online fundraising has no donations yet and it’s over a week old, are your friends and family not lending you support either? Maybe these people completely lack credibility

    Nice work WHO trying to make them feel good and not doing your homework on who your story is about.

    • jhiggins50312

      Sgt. Smith, if tht is what you are, you are more than welcome to come over to my home and we can discuss any credibility, I happen to volunteer to help protect our nations infrastructures. I’d be glad to show you my credentials, and background checks are done. Your intelligence is incomplete on the subject. There have been no “free” rides here and go ahead and call around and see that places wont let us in becasue of the mold here and the spores. We are NOT blaming just the NEW landlords because the OLD landlord is just as guilty. Matter of fact you can check his history with property as well. Attacking us is great we welcome it. We didnt come on the news to bash the new landlords, we needed help because nothing was done. They had 30-days to repair this place and that expired last Thursday. So if you are indeed a Sgt. your intel is very inaccurate. But again, if you’d like to discuss my credibility your more than welcome!

      Everyone is an expert even so called Sgt. but you dont know the whole story. Free rent…plz…weve been harassed beyond what anyone should go through and my family has suffered enough. Since your a Sgt and may have some intelligence maybe you can answer why they have never responded to any of the multiple communication attempts to them before we even got the news involved. We’ve tried so many steps to handle this the best way we knew how and NOTHING!

      I hope Sgt is just a handle because basing your decision on whats posted here well..lets just say I’m glad your in the states and not overseas protecting us.

      And as far as my wife’s prior relationship and having something on her record, her ex was to blame on that so i know you don’t work information well, specially dissemenating it.

      • jhiggins50312

        For the record, we double checked our public records for Waynette Higgins and Waynette Bishop….Please everyone, verify what people are saying before you believe something from these people on here, as most are FOR the HEDRICK’s and against us….Nothing has ever been on either Waynette Higgins OR Waynette Bishop for an FED filing except the Hedricks….Please be smart and look this up on Iowa courts online BEFORE you believe anything on here! This is just another attempt to discredit us wrongfully!

      • jhiggins50312

        This is Waynette, as far as any “attempted” FED, that was all it turned into; just an “attempt”…and as far as Sgt. Smith is concerned, he could be the smith associated to one of those attempts who may be aquainted with the Hedrick’s OR I can look into how much damage you are causing wrongfully in this case based off of another case you may be involved in prior years versus Waynette and Jeramy Bishop. Now, Jeramy currently lives in a location that filed an FED with my name attached for legal purposes, but it was not me they tried to FED! Why would that company FED him and me and yet allow hikm years later to move right back? HMMMM….makes people wonder how accurate information is when it doesn’t show all the details!

  • rhonda

    Ironic that the Higgins “home based business” is soaps. You’d think they’d know how to clean their home. Their “soaps” also claim to cure sickness and conditions, sounds sweet, but doesn’t work on their own mysterious illnesses that have shown up with the “mold”. Maybe the mold was caused by their soap business in their rented home. Which is on hold, because you can’t make soap in a moldy environment. Most landlords prohibit businesses being run out of their rental property, and what about the city ordinances? If there’s no rental certificate, and you knew their wasn’t, why didn’t you move? This doesn’t make any sense. Won’t the City force you to move from a place with no certificate? Best of luck to you guys, but geez, move out and move on with your life.

    • jhiggins50312

      To answer your questions…I’m sorry…attacks….the prior landlord new we hard began the process of starting our own business maiking soaps with essential oils in them. We never intended on having the primary operations ran out of our home but we did do our homework on this matter.What your looking for here is our FEIN and business insurance which we obtained in September of 2013. We also had our business set up for online sales and to retailers who support local businesses. We have never claimed any such claims to curing anything but what we have accumulated with a lot of research is the benefit of using well…anything with essential oil in them. Inforamtion, which once our website is up and running (currently under construction) will be available to everyone. We can also provide testomonies of people who have sampled our soap, in their words not ours. And soap making does not cause mold, you should look that up. The mold has been in here way longer than we even had the idea of starting a homemade soap business using essential oils, unless you can tell me how me managed to put soap in between the walls, under the tub, in our sons closet and i mean in the wall, etc etc etc, I mean really??? And yes we have chosen to put our soap business on hold but for the record, Why on earth would we continue to make soap in a mold/black mold enviornment even if it wasnt a danger to our customers? Not good business ethics either.

      2. The new landlords did two walkthroughs and yes, they were also made aware of our business plans and the start up was out of our home, gave them some samples and a business card.

      We didnt find out about the rental certificate until a little later and we had already had symptoms from the mold here, and we clean on a regular basis here. We clean all the time now. The new landlords started there harassment right after we mentioned we were concerned we still had repairs, major ones that still were not met. Being ill from this, going through all this harassment, feeling like the business may slip because we were ill. etc…c’mon really…..

      Best of luck to you as well, as far as moving on and moving out…..guess you’d have to be in our shoes to experience the many disappoinments we have had these last 8 months, unexplained sickness all the time, being let down by your new landlord from the start, possibly giving up on a business dream because of these illnesses, telling the property manager during his “repair” walk through (never wrote it down, and I am sure one will be created after this, lol) all the things we were concerned about with repairs, them harassing us, being told to get the “f” out, illeglly evicting us, the possible mold spores in here now,everyone telling us to move out, do you know how many of our things have mold spores that we can move with us? right! u dont…but moving on? would love to….but were still dealing with everything and the landlords have done nothing of interest for us…why dont you check that angle?.

      • Fred Ver Schuure

        Joel If you would spend a fraction as much time WORKING as you do answering all the posts you may have your own home instead of renting someones else s place and then YOU could make all the repairs that come along with owning a PROPERTY!

      • Joel Higgins

        So FRED, you do agree then that the OWNERS of a PROPERTY are responsible for doing repairs, thank you, weve been arguing that for months,

      • John

        Did I read that right Joel? You say the “possibility” of mold spores? so, you don’t even have proof that mold spores are everywhere, oh, because others won’t fund your “testing” needed… With the money you also claimed to have saved from not paying rent, get out and go somewhere safe. Be a man and take care of your family, their health and safety should come before your wanting justice and a hand-out.. Just my opinion, you consider everything not agreeing with your side an “attack” but when you put yourself out there, other people may express their opinions.

      • Holly Johnson

        I agree with you john. I told them to email me. When they did I gave them my phone number to call because I had a free place they could have stayed for a few weeks while rental house was being repaired from mold. Didn’t hear from them. I was in a apt full of this nasty mold at westpointe and fell very ill quickly. Lucky for me I had the credit and money to get out two months after moving in. The mold problem is worse then most think and and I am sad that people are trapped in it due to financial reasons. Tried to help them but it does appear they are after money only.

      • John

        @ Holly, That was nice of you to try to help them. I bet you aren’t the only one, but they have their minds set on what help they want, and they won’t settle for less. @joel higgins… I have never met the Hedricks, and don’t know anyone that knows them as far as I know. Some of us can smell bs a mile away and your pity party is easy to have an opinion on. I’ve read your 50+ Comments on here Joel, you are the one who refuses to see the other side. Enjoy your pity party and keeping your family sick because you won’t proactively handle your business. You can’t help someone who refuses to help themselves, but good try Holly.

  • rhonda

    You’re raging comments make it sound like you’re just a squatter, you won’t get out of a bad environment to save your family’s health. Well, yyou say a lot of different things-you’re moving, they can’t get rid of you… Too worried about your material things to leave. I still think the soap production could cause mold, adding the needed moisture to cause it

  • Fred Ver Schuure

    Joel, I agree that an Owner needs to repair his own Property BUT as a supposed legal process server that you once owned you must know that a person can be evicted if rent is 1 day past due and just because the property has deficiencies doesn’t excuse you from your responsibilities to pay YOUR RENT. I can imagine the new owners aren’t going to do anything in hopes of the City tagging the home and then having the City force you out. If you were paying your rent BEFORE this problem I can’t imagine the landlords letting you stay there.If you are staying to get damages from the Landlords and putting your family in harms way,SHAME ON YOU, but if you were not paying and using this (problem) to excuse you from your obligations, you deserve WHATEVER YOU GET!!!!!

  • neighbor of Higgins

    Um, your family has trashed the place and you’re not exactly clean people. Just move, stop harassing& threatening others who have to deal with you. If you don’t cooperate of course our landlords can’t fix the problems with you there. Hopefully the city will condemn your unit.

    • jhiggins50312

      Nieghbors that are housing someone with a with a 5 year no contact order to protect the Higgins(then finding out the long history your family has with violence)? We EXPECT your behaviors to show biasedness against us… ANOTHER point, no landlords are protecting us from the time that has happened!, Wonder if this is the same people that are constantly tearing up the yard lately? hmmm

      • Neighbor of Higgins

        Excuse me? Didn’t Waynette file a domestic abuse case against you? I believe she didn’t go much further with it… but still. Drama drama drama.

  • jhiggins50312

    @ Holly, We don’t trust anyone, until we have met you and can verify who you are….a phone number and email are not safe enough measures in today’s societies

  • jhiggins50312

    Slam all you want people, as we have figured most on here are for the Hedricks…so biased….and so fast to turn biased if you have honestly dealt with such ….you would not rush to go to the other side without more information, just saying you would probably know the hectic schedules this brings into someones life?

  • jhiggins50312

    The only people we expect to be posting on here are those affiliated with the owners in some way, as it is “old news” at this point! Unfortunately, we have found something I believe Holly was trying to speak about that needs to change….There is a huge glitch in our system….that is something we all should be thinking about instead of bashing each other. There was a chance for a long time for the new owners to work with us, they chose not to, and to treat us wrongfully; this was already old by the time it reached the news. The damage was already done by then.

  • jhiggins50312

    Now, to the public, we only wanted to help prevent this from happening exactly the same way it has for many before and possibly many after; Listen to the stories of the past if not ours; We all need to assess the system and it’s abilities to prevent this from happening like this again! Then, you won’t have to hear the “cries” from so many of those it has harmed in this exact way! We don’t expect to be on here anymore, as the message is missed on this site. But, remember this can happen to any of you at any time if you don’t learn something about it.We have further found(and trust me, you can get tossed around with everyone becoming a sudden expert in everything related to mold) we don’t need the mold expert for court, but it would be beneficial for science reasons. Therefore, we are canceling our plea for help with that.

  • John

    message received Joel… you want to whine about your problem, won’t let the landlord fix it, won’t move so they can properly fix it, and want someone to pay for you to have new things and a new place to live.

  • neighbor of Higgins

    Did you tell our landlords that you have another adult occupant living with you? Why did you take him in if your situation was so unhealthy? Or did you just let him know you were working on a money making scheme and he could be included. Is his name Mike ? Usually you can’t just let someone move in. Usually renters actually pay rent though too. Sue happy Squatters. Don’t beat waynette again. I usually like her except when she gets that crazy tick and starts yelling at people unnecessarily.
